SLIPPERY ROAD

 

Silence was a friend indeed

Came to me on bended knee

Asked politely for my mind to stand at ease

Silence said only to be

But history says a fool is he

Who follows not the footsteps of his calling

And what calls me to shore

Is it the wanting of the war

Is it to fight another day to say

Hey I was good

Did what I should

I should not care what for

 

Zazz was an angel, fell from heaven

Took his time to sink

Touched ground on 13th and second

And he found himself a drink

He took one hard look around

And then he laid more money down

Said, this whole town needs saving

Who am I to disagree

 

But it’s okay

If I don’t get it done today

And it’s alright

If I stay up late tonight

But if I say the same thing tomorrow

Come hell, come high water

Take me down from this slippery road

 

Sam was sure from the west side of Philly

And she made her presence known

None of you here would have any idea

She’s got three little kids at home

She said, my daytime is pay

For when the kids are alright someday

My nightlife could need changing

Who am I to disagree

 

But it’s okay

If I don’t get it done today

And it’s alright

If I stay up late tonight

But if I say the same thing tomorrow

Come hell, come high water

Take me down from this slippery road

 

Take me down from this slippery road

Although I know I just want to feel better

It’s such a slippery road

When I get out of my head again, my head again

 

And it’s okay

If I don’t get it done today

And it’s alright

If I stay up late tonight

But if I say the same thing tomorrow

If I say the same thing tomorrow

Come hell, come high water

Take me down from this slippery road
